Spinal Decompression Therapy is a traction-based procedure that is safe, non-invasive, pain- free and drug-free. It is one of the leading, long-term treatment options for people suffering from neck pain, back pain, pinched nerves, disc herniation and sciatic leg pain.
Decompression Therapy works by gently stretching your spine in a safe and controlled manner, effectively creating a negative pressure allowing for increased oxygenation and nutrient circulation to the discs and joints in your spine. As your disc restores itself back to its natural state, back and neck pain decrease, often resulting in major, long-lasting improvements in pain.
At Linford Chiropractic Clinic we use a computerized decompression table. This table not only allows for accurate, gentle and painless unloading of your injured spinal discs but also allows for variety and flexibility of the pull-pattern, a necessity for providing you with optimal individualized treatment.
Its design also allows for smooth, friction-free treatments offering you more comfort.
There are many conditions that Spinal Decompression Therapy can successfully treat, including:
- herniated discs
- degenerative disc disease
- nerve root impingement
- muscle spasm
- joint hypo-mobility
Generally, patients report a major improvement in back and neck pain as well as an overall quality of life after approximately 8-10 treatments.
Our clinic offers both cervical and lumbar spinal decompression.
